Publisher Note

Fatherland exposes the scars born from decades of violent hate crimes throughout Peru’s cities, deserts, the Andes, and the jungles of the Amazon. Although no assailant is shown, the series underscores the dangerous effects of patriarchy and intolerance, and examines how these constructs create toxic environments that lend little worth to LGBTQ lives. To give voice to the victims, each image is captioned with their name, age, and the year, location, and nature of the assault.

The work of collaborators Juan Jose Barboza-Gubo (Peru, 1976) & Andrew Mroczek (USA, 1977) focuses on aspects of marginalization as the result of patriarchy as a social system, along with themes of masculinity, gender identity and gender roles as they effect the LGBTQ communities, most recently, in Peru.
